Bibu Mohapatra is a man that I have not heard of until this year, though he had launched his own line beginning four years ago. I was of course checking style.com and found his line and read the review. Though the review only hints to a few good aspects of the collection, I found that I loved many pieces. This worries me as I have to question my taste. Bibhu's collection for fall 2011, I believed offered a little something different from what the other designers are showing. His work seems to be absolutely sewn to perfection while including amazing fabrics, pleats and folds. I also enjoyed the goat fur that was incorporated which was quite the interesting touch. I love the different cuts and asymmetry that he added to this collection. I believe he is on to something and I am willing to become an obsessed fan, which I am at the current moment! I enjoy his cocktail dresses and evening wear. Though everyone claims that we do not need more pretty party or cocktail dresses, I think that Bibhu Mohapatra offers a little something more. That may just be me, so let me know what you think!
style.com or even wwd.com, both are fun sites to "play" on.
